March 2, 2022. Teacher Katie Bushma engaged our 8 kindergarten students in creating art. They get a full and enjoyable program of handwriting, reading, spelling, math, music, art, Chinese, and Spanish.
28 January 2022: The kindergarteners created art, particularly studying perspective as they drew buildings various scales and view angles. They also wrote 100 words to celebrate their 100th day of school, and for another celebration of 100 they made collages of 10 pieces of 10 snacks.
At the end of the 2019-20 school year, our kindergarteners, ready for their transition to the 1-2 classroom, wrote letters of advice to the new group:
Week of 1-5 March 2021. Our kindergarteners and early kindergarteners are learning elements of poetry. New teacher Katie Bushma has them imagining and writing. Some poems were composed on the whiteboard, some on paper; some were “blackout poetry,” using a random text and selecting some words and lining out others.
Teacher Arielle Lane asked the kindergarten students to write letters to the next class, to tell them what they should know about the class. Enjoy these two!
Our early kindergarten / kindergarten class celebrated Earth Day. Teacher Arielle Lane provided materials and the students took it from there. Gabby planted beans, Evan made a bird feeder from a recycled bottle, Errol made a worm house, Obi was joined by his older sisters in making flowers, and Adjoa enjoyed making a leaf lei.
